This year I was very pleased to be invited to contribute to 24 Photography.  In 2004 they signalled the start of a photographic project that saw 24 postgraduate photography students, from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, document the first day of the New Year. 

24 hours. 24 photographers. 24 images. 24 years.

My frame was shot at 1400 on New Year’s Day, on Lee Beach in Devon.

Taken on Lee Beach in Devon, this area of outstanding natural beauty is famous for its unique, exposed geology and abundance of fossils.  Tides and powerful wave action erode and shape the jagged coastline. At low water the tidal pools drain through the sediments chipped from the cliffs depositing shale into the cracks and crevices.   

The current body of work can be seen in Soho Square on exhibition until Friday the 18th March with glowing reviews and features by both the BBC and The Independent.
